How Do You Solve Tear of the Kingdom’s Sahasra Slope Tower?

First off, when you come across the tower, it will look like nothing is wrong. Talk to the Rito NPC Billson next to it to learn that the door simply will not open because the shrine’s power terminal is on the fritz. He will tell you about a cave system running underneath the tower. He will mention the cave system, and a spot with mushrooms. Billson does not want mushrooms, do not give him mushrooms. SImply go down to the cave system below and ascend into the tower.

We recommend bringing weapons fused with rocks, because you will need to break a ton of pink rocks to clear through the cavern tunnels. Break through the first set of pink rocks with your rock weapon, and then you will come to a split in the path. Go forward to find some enemies and a chest, or go right until you come across another fork in the path. This is the direction you will need to go to open the tower.

When you come across another fork, which can be tricky to spot, you will want to take the new opening on the right-hand side. You will enter a small room, with a movable grey rock on the other side. In this small room, you can use the Ascend ability to ascend directly into the Sahasra Tower. The coordinates for this room at (1340, -1177, 0166)
